Jono is an awesome instructor - had such a great time flying with him. Really appreciated the advise and tips, and the emphasis on safety is great for someone learning to fly. Will be back again very soon :) Thanks mate!

The scenic flight was to celebrate 5 years mentoring. It could not have been better. Pilot Jono so very pleasant, beautiful weather, wonderful views, fascinating seeing the familiar from the air. We both thoroughly enjoyed this experience and very grateful to GCH.
